Are there great white sharks in the Maldives? (Is it safe to swim and dive?)

There are no great white sharks in the Maldives as great whites prefer cooler waters. The waters around the Maldives are 28-30°C (82-86°F) and great white sharks prefer coastal and offshore waters with water temperatures between 12-24°C (54-75 °F) instead. Instead of white sharks you’ll see 26 other shark types.

What should I wear after scuba diving?

After scuba diving with a bikini under a wetsuit you’re best to wear thin non-water absorbing board shorts or synthetic shorts like the Patagonia Micro Planning shorts. Combine this with a similar fabric t-shirt and you’re good to go. Even better is to wear a waterproof neoprene bikini or swimsuit that doesn’t get wet!
